In 2016, Brooke Davis established a nature play program in Adelaide called Wild Imagination. She noticed the significant shift away from green time since her childhood a few 'short' decades ago and thought kids today could do with a little old school fun! With a desire to get more kids immersed in the natural environment, plus offer an alternative to traditional vacation care, where parents could head to work and their children could be at a nature based school holiday program. The idea is that kids get to spend their school holidays more like we did when we were young; outside, exploring, creating and learning.
